I am a great fan of using natural ingredients to create affordable homemade face masks and scrubs. Using a bag of organic tea you can make and apply the  green tea face masks and packs given in this article to enhance your beauty. Green tea works to detoxify your face and skin. Green tea may be bitter to taste, but is sweet to skin. Moreover, green tea is packed with anti-oxidants that help to guard against free radicals in your body. Due to this, it aids to delay formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Because of the green tea beauty benefits, you will find numerous cosmetic products available on the market that contain green tea as an active ingredient.

2. Green Tea And Lemon Juice Facial Mask: Green tea acts as a potent antioxidant and natural UV protector. Packed with minerals, it nourishes skin and fights the signs of ageing also. Lemon juice contains lots of vitamin C that boosts collagen development. It also contains citric acid that tightens skin pores and lightens overall skin. Its potassium content helps hydration. It’s also a rich source of lutein that boosts natural antioxidants to fight aging and increases UV defense.

(i) Take 2 tablespoons of brewed green tea (cooled), ½ teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric powder. Turmeric powder is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that fight acne, eczema and many other skin conditions. It also acts as a potent antioxidant to lighten dark spots, blemishes, sunspots, etc.

Tip: If the turmeric powder stains your skin, use sugar scrub to get rid of it. Also either reduce the quantity of turmeric powder or use lemon juice and green tea only without using turmeric powder. Even the green tea and lemon juice alone are beneficial to skin.

3. Green Tea, Rice Flour And Lemon Juice Mask For Oily Skin: Rice flour is a natural ingredient that is helpful in treating blemishes, pigmentation and dark spots. Due to its exfoliating properties it helps in absorbing the excess oil and sebum from the face. Regular use of rice flour in the face masks helps in imparting a natural glow to your skin and makes it healthy.

(i) Brew some green tea and allow it to cool. Mix well 3 tablespoons of cool green tea solution with 3-4 table spoons of rice flour.  Add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to it to form a smooth and spreadable paste, but not runny. Mix more tea if the paste is too thick.

Rinse the pack off your face with lots of water, rubbing the pack to exfoliate your skin. Apply your favorite moisturizer.

4. Green Tea, Sugar And Cream Mask For Dry To Normal Skin: It’s a known fact that sugar is an effective skin exfoliating agent, because its granules act as micro particles to remove the dead skin cells and dirt from upper skin layers.

(i) Boil some green tea leaves in water, let it cool down and stain it to get green tea solution.

  1. Can I pre make the green tea, yogurt and lemon mask and leave it in the fridge or will it lose its effectiveness/go bad?

  2. […] tea can also be beneficial to use on the outside, as face masks. There are several ways you can DIY some great and easy face masks. For dull skin, cut open a used green tea bag and mix it with honey for added glow and moisture to […]

  3. Hello, I have only read the first two points, and I would like to share some of my knowledge with you, which could prevent you from “destroying” your body.

    1. Please do not place low-price green tea leaves – (especially those in premade bags) – on your skin. Our skin absorbs the heavy metals in the green tea, and usually there are plenty of toxic heavy metals in low-price tea bags. I myself use gyokuro leaves, which are of finest quality, also safe from heavy metals.

    Side-note: The heavy metals in tea origins from the environment, in which the tea bush is planted. Japanese or Indian tea should be considered, since they contain less toxic heavy metals, than Chinese tea.

    2. Lemon – and any other acids – should never be applied to the skin, unless you have to use them as a disinfectant. Especially because they strip your face from all of its natural oil, which prevents it from drying out. This would lead to the opposite effect, of which was intended.

    Let us just say that I have done my searching on the internet. And as a stoicist, I rely only on reason and facts, therefore, I do not contribute with any feelings concerning this matter. I hope you can make use of this information 🙂

    • @Patrick,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on acids on the skin and the heavy metals found in cheap green tea. I found that to be useful. Our skin does absorb these things and I always try to go organic with skin care for this very, reason.

  4. You can also use 4 slices of cucumber, 2 tablespoons of yoghurt and half a mug of stewed green tea blended together and chilled as a toner and face wash to cool inflammed skin, get rid of blemishes and even skin tone 🙂
